That article took way too long to just say, 'yeah, he's an exciting prospect, but let's see what he does against stakes horses.' :P :lol:

Is it true......

Baffert said........ He's as good as any horse I've had in the past 5 or 10 years!

Bob's personal GOAT list is about as long as. ..Gary Stevens'. :D
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

Has Gary Young commented on Justify? If so, I'd be interested to hear his thoughts...

I do love late bloomers, but for later summer races.

I watched some maiden races i.e. Curlin, Street Sense, Arrogate.......... and then Justify. Justify just doesn't have the kind of wingspan that I like in a classic distance horse. Looks kinda "sprinty" to me. :shrugs:

And the only reason he didn't get the bullet is because of this other colt..... ;)

During his TB training career, there have been two horses with the name Bullet Bob and Baffert didn’t have either one. Who goofed.........I got to know.

The only reason to ever enjoy SoCal afternoon traffic on the way home from work was because of the Jim Healy show!

I agree with everything Ballerina said about Justify. There's just something about him that "could" make him special. But this Saturday, it's mostly hype. I remember my boy, Rock Hard Ten, getting hyped up in 2004 after a maiden and allowance win too. Then got DQ'd as we all saw Castledale win it.

I like Bolt D'Oro. More proven. Like his sire more as a racehorse and stallion than Scat Daddy. Like Javier. Yeah, McKinzie should have won but Bolt was still right there and didn't give up either. Hope Justify goes off at 4-5 or less based on looks and hype thanks to Baffert and Smith connection. Want to go double or nothing on Bolt as Justify hasn't justified his hype on me yet.

Don't lose your money on based on mostly hype and potential. Tried doing that with Exotic Wood beating Serena's Song. Foolish me. Bolt 1st, Regard 2nd, Justify 3rd. I still have that sour taste in my mouth left by Arrogate last year.
Rock Hard Ten. Free House. Soul Of The Matter. Lit de Justice. Zenyatta. Justify. Cigar. Ghostzapper. Lava Man. Silver Charm.

I am rooting for Justify but am a little worried- felt like his last work not as impressive as 2 prior ones. I hope I am wrong and he wins big.
